Alexis Baum at the crux of Texas Chosspile


After a hard start, you get to make some big moves from big holds.


This is the furthest right route on the wall, it starts a few feet right of the obvious water streak that Fallout follows.

Correction - the first ascensionist was Boyle. Darren bolted it but didn't get around to cleaning it or even red tag it to indicate it as a project. This was when Boyle had been developing and climbing at the area. He saw the route, not knowing anything about the line, and climbed it. Later, Boyle went to MtWorks and mentioned the most horrible line that he had climbed to Darren. DK told him he could name it, hence Texas Choss Pile, but Boyle did not want to be known as having the F.A. on such a "pile". So, Darren climbed the route later. Hence the name Slick Willy. Quite comical, really. What would be funny, is change the F.A. to Boyle.
